NY&A has some team tracks here and there (I guess, for example, off John Street in Hicksville), although as I understand it they limit how far out they go east nowadays, so that's a consideration if you were, for example, in Montauk. Also, unused sidings after a few years tend to get disconnected as the LIRR charges some sort of fee to maintain them (this may or may not be true nowadays). Maybe Brookhaven Rail Terminal is now acting as a team-track, I don't know, and neither will you UNLESS you contact the NY&A directly.
